ah.  Your mp3 player is downloading the stream instead of playing it right
away.  You need to create an M3U file with your stream URL in it and link
to that on your website.  Your player will download this and open the
contained URL and play it.  So as an example

tream.m3u contains:


Now you'd link to this as follows:

<A HREF="stream.m3u">Listen</A>

The person clicks on this, the M3U file is downloaded and the player opens
it and launches a connection to http://server:8000/stream .

This is streaming basics, but it comes up so often that it's obviously
missing from the icecast docs.
